Happy Easter Tu Tu You...

Happy Saturday!
Hope you are all well, and enjoying a beautiful weekend.
Mother Nature is still pretty crabby here in Mo.

It's Saturday, and you know what that means - I'm here to share a fun project for

The Great Impressions' design team has been busy all week long, showcasing fun and fabulous ways to wrap up those Easter treats.  If you haven't been checking out the Great Impressions blog posts this week, be sure to do so - loads of inspiration!

I began with a white lunch bag, and two squares of blue cardstock.

I laid the bag down, turned it over, and smoothed the back 'bag bottom' down flat.

Then I trimmed the entire bag down several inches.

I stamped and colored the image and sentiment, and adhered that panel
to a piece of fun patterned paper. 

A grass die cut was added to the bottom for a bit of fun.  

This entire focal panel was then adhered to one of the blue cardstock squares.  

A label punch was used to create openings on each blue panel,
and each panel was adhered to the bag front with Tombow Extreme adhesive.

The bag was filled with pink grass and lots of Easter candies, and tied shut with
a scrap of ribbon.

Hope this inspired to you grab that stash of lunch bags, and your Great Impressions
Stamps, and get creative!  By the way, isn't this image Tu Tu cute???

Thanks for stopping by today!

Don't forget - there is still time to join us in this month's 'Go Green' challenge (HERE!) and if you use any GI stamps be sure to link up to the customer gallery (HERE)

Be sure to stop by the Great Impressions store (HERE) and treat yourself to a few new stamps!

Did you know shipping is free over $25?!
